Patio roo home addition with Spanlites to allow the sun to open the space
We were looking to update our entertaining area which is quite large and called into Spanline ACT after driving past the showroom. Everything from the first meeting with Scott Basman has been fantastic. Scott had renderings completed so we could visualize a completed project.Our project is still a working progress, very happy with Scott, Dan, Tom and the entire team and can’t wait for our completion
Spanline Coffs Harbour were excellent to deal with. They were very knowledgeable & couldn’t do enough to help us. Thank you!

We had a rather small modification made to our sunroom, which was originally built by Spanline over 10yrs ago. The job turned out just as we had hoped. Salesman Frank and supervisor Trevor were quick to provide replies to our queries and updates throughout. We consider that very important, so that we know we haven't been forgotten after signing on the dotted line. All members of the team we spoke with were easy to talk to, accepted our questions and input and made us feel part of the process. Cannot recommend them highly enough.Tony Zahra

Amazing job by Spanline!! Constant consultation during the build of our deck roof, and with the organising of electrical work to light switches and installation of ceiling fan. We now enjoy entertaining on the covered deck enjoying the sunset and the view to the escarpment
After some research we contacted Spanline about an addition for our house. Scott Basman came out and talked to us about what we wanted from the space. He worked with us on the design, he is very knowledgeable and made sure it was everything we wanted. Lachlan, Adrian and Jake were also amazing throughout the build process, now we have a massive indoor/outdoor space which is perfect for our needs.

The new structure was built efficiently, on time, and is a quality build! Thank you Mick! Thank you team for your courtesy and efficiency! Would recommend you to family and friends.

Tips on how to keep costs down without sacrificing quality or functionality?

  1. We recommend obtaining multiple bids for your project. This will allow you to compare prices and find an option that most suits your budget.
  2. Learn all you can about materials. Your Spanline Design Advisor can help you understand the difference between materials in terms of longevity, costs and quality. Opting for low-cost materials may result in higher expenses over time.
  3. Choose a simple design. A simple design is often more affordable than an elaborate one. When you’re planning your custom home addition, keep this in mind and choose a design that is both stylish and practical. Start by reviewing our Recent Projects.
  4. Avoid unnecessary features. This will help to keep costs down without sacrificing quality.
  5. Consider the functionality of the materials and the overall design. Insulated panels or tinted windows can help with temperature regulation within the space. Consider designing your new addition to take advantage of the flow of air and direction of the sun. This can reduce the need for additional heating or cooling elements in your new area.
  6. Shop Around for Financing It’s crucial to compare offers from different lenders to find the most affordable interest rates and terms.

Spanline’s extensions, patios, and pergolas are made from high-quality materials and backed by up to 15 years warranty.* That’s worth considering when it comes time to add on to your home. Let us help you explore cost-saving measures that work best for your budget and preferences. Speak with a with a Design Consultant in your area today and see how you can Make Space At Your Place.

Spanline’s Expert Insights:

  • What is the purpose: Before beginning, it is important to determine the purpose of the addition. Consider if it is for extra living space, an outdoor gym or outdoor dining and BBQ area. This will help determine the size and layout of your home addition ideas. Consult with a Spanline Design Advisor to help determine the best design and layout for your specific needs
  • Obtain necessary permits: Adding onto a home typically requires obtaining permits from your local government. This ensures that the room addition meets building codes and regulations and that it is safe and structurally sound. Your Spanline team can assist you with navigating the permit process and ensuring that all requirements are met.
  • Hire a reputable contractor: It is important to hire a reputable contractor with experience in conventional additions and custom additions. Check their credentials and references, and make sure they are licensed and insured. Spanline Home Additions has been an industry leader in the home improvement sector for over 38 years, consistently delivering innovative and high-quality solutions for Australian homeowners. All Spanline builders are fully licensed and committed to continuous professional development and have hands-on experience, ensuring quality and safety in all of our home improvement projects.
  • Set a budget: Home additions require careful planning, so it is important to set a budget and stick to it. This will help ensure that you know exactly how the project will progress and what the finished project will look like.
  • Consider the design and aesthetics: A home addition should blend seamlessly with the existing home and complement its design and aesthetics. This can be achieved through careful planning and attention to detail. We are experts in creating custom home additions that enhance the overall look and feel of your home.
  • Plan for future needs: When planning your custom home addition, it’s important to consider the long-term future of your family. Will there be more children or grandchildren in the future? What about the needs of ageing parents or relatives? It’s essential to ensure that the addition is not only stylish but also functional and practical for years to come.
  • Choose materials wisely: Choosing the right materials for the addition can impact its longevity and durability. Consider factors such as weather resistance, maintenance requirements, and insulation.
  • Think about lighting and ventilation: Adequate lighting and ventilation are essential for a comfortable and healthy living space. Including these elements in the design of the addition can enhance its functionality and comfort. Consult with a Spanline Design Advisor to ensure that your addition is designed with optimal natural light and ventilation.
  • Factor in landscaping and furnishing: Landscaping and furnishings can enhance the overall look and feel of the addition, as well as provide privacy and shade.
  • Be patient: Home additions can be complex and time-consuming projects. Be patient and allow for unexpected delays or challenges that may arise during the construction process.
